Tree Sales Volunteers
Thank you for supporting Vale's Christmas tree sales to benefit Rise Against Hunger!
We need an adult for each shift to be the opener-cashier-closer. These shifts are scheduled to begin 30 minutes prior to lot opening and end with lot closing activities.
We need at least three adults on weekend shifts and one on weekdays in addition to the opener-cashier-closer roles.
We are looking for families or groups willing to sponsor a weeknight (Monday, Wednesday, or Thursday) during the sales season. If you are willing to be a sponsor please sign up for all three Mondays, Wednesdays, or Thursdays. We already have Tuesdays and Fridays spoken for!
Opener duties include retrieving the shed lock from the designated location, powering up the lot, starting music, setting out small items from the shed, powering up and checking the connection for the credit card machine, counting the start-up cash, and reviewing the lot safety checklist.
Lot closing dues include cashing out and placing the cash box and credit card machine in the designated location, powering down the lot, moving small items into the shed, turning off the music, locking the shed, and returning the key to the designated location.
Cashiers are responsible for processing purchases, providing receipts, collecting tree tickets, inviting the customer to update their contact information if they are interested in volunteering on the lot or at food packinging events, and handing out literature as the customer leaves.
This role is a combination of customer support and tree processing. Volunteers will answer cutomer questions, remove trees from stands, move them to the processing area, trim, bag, and help customers load and tie the tree. Additional duties may include preparing trees for the display area and replacing sold trees with prepared trees.
Cookie Bagging and Cider Preparation
Cookie baggers are masked and gloved volunteers in the kitchen that will place cookies in individual baggies. The cider will be prepared in the designated urn. After preparation, the volunteer will take the refreshments and disposable cups to the lot sales area. The Sunday shift includes preparing enough cookies for the upcoming weekday evening.
